Light backgrounds and large floral prints

Large floral patterns are one of the most popular trends at the moment. This is a really beautiful type of floral print that you can use almost anywhere you want. Bedspreads and blankets featuring these prints are a really great option for your home.

However, we wouldn’t recommend using large prints on smaller items. Larger surfaces will allow you to really enjoy your florals to the full, making them stand out and play a more prominent role in your decor. The best option is to use them on items such as beds, curtains or walls.

Color combinations

Floral patterns with l ight blue backgrounds and red and yellow flowers are always a good choice. This is a really popular combination for bedrooms and living rooms. Another popular choice is a white background with pink and green flowers. Choose whichever pattern you like best and decorate your home with these gorgeous flowers.

Mini florals

You can also find small floral patterns. These rococo style prints will give your home a more romantic and vintage feel. You could choose prints with a white background and yellow and green flowers. These tones will create a really fresh and cheerful atmosphere.

Medium sized prints

Finally, we have medium-sized floral patterns. These are really in at the moment. They’re ideal for wallpaper, curtains, pillow covers, blankets, and carpets. One of the most popular types of medium-sized florals are watercolor-style prints. As their name suggests, they mimic the look and style of watercolor paintings. Choosing these floral patterns will fill your home with character and originality.

How to combine floral patterns in your home

Floral patterns are great for wallpaper.

Once you’ve chosen your  favorite floral patterns and incorporated them into your interior decor, you can start to combine them with additional features.

If you’ve chosen fuchsia florals, for example, you can combine them with matching pink items. One way to do this would be to buy small stools or footrests of the same color, pink throws or blankets for your sofa, and a matching table runner for your coffee table.

This will help give your rooms a greater sense of continuity and visual unity. Plus, the vibrant colors of these floral patterns will help give your home a bright, fresh feel.

And, small, colorful floral elements work really well with minimalist decor. Alternatively, if you love the romantic and vintage styles, you could go for antique furniture and upholster it with floral patterned fabric.
